I’m currently having a series of 6 chemical peels with good results & have definitely seen a decrease in pore size. My face does look fresher which is the result I’m after. Not sure whether I should get botox or not?

  • I haven’t had anything done but your chemical peel sounds like it went well.Botox is not affordable to me maybe in the future.Best of luck if you decide to do it.


  • I am 47 – have had a chemical peel when younger – no difference. I haven’t had fillers or botox, but a lot of the 27yo and over girls get it… they look lovely anyway, so I don’t know why they do it, but it is bloody expensive but does make a difference to wrinkles… Good luck!


  • have been thinking of doing peels as I have HUGE pores, would love to read more responses on botox myself too, want to do it but a little afraid haha


  • It’s a pretty personal decision, it will depend on many things including your peers and family. Me? I happy in my skin..wrinkles and all!


  • Not to sure but I hope other mums can help you. Good luck.


  • Have you decided on anything yet?


  • I would love to try this out also, but I have pigmentation and I believe a peel would make it worse


  • i love botox! haven’t had it since pregnancy/babies but i started getting it age 21- not heaps just my forehead creases and i love how much fresher it makes me look. Whatever you do just don’t go overboard- its easy to get more and more and more and then look like an idiot.


  • Take a look at all the celebs they all have it. If you are after a fresher look than just stay with the peels. If you have lines that are starting to stay then botox is great to stop you using the muscle that forms the line. If the lines are very deep you may need a filler as sometimes botox cannot help with a line that is too far advanced. I have had botox and I love it stops my frown line from appearing. I know of a lot of people who have it done and have never looked back, they love it.


  • I haven’t had either myself but maybe just discuss the options available to you.
    Good luck in the decision you make.


  • Can’t tell if you need Botox, it is your personal decision as only u know your age and situation. But just wanted to wish u best of luck


  • Not knowing how old you are, or what sort of lines and wrinkles you have, it’s hard to say if you really need botox. Considering that botox is basically a toxin, unless you’ve really got a face full of lines & wrinkles, I’d steer clear of it.


  • Thanks for sharing your experience with the peels


  • I haven’t had either and for myself don’t plan to but I hope you end up finding the answers you are wanting


  • I have not had either, but not keen on plastic surgery for vanity reasons. – sorry!
